Welcome to Spaniel Training's Blog

We are the ONLY trainer in the Southeast that specializes in spaniels for upland work. We are not retriever trainers that train a few spaniels. We are not trainers that specialize in retriever games for Boykins. We specialize in training your spaniel for what it was bred for, which is to quest game, produce it and retrieve it!

Developing Spaniels Dec 06, 2018

To me, a “trainer” implies a superiority over the pupil that is destined to fail from the beginning. A person that “develops” is destined to always be searching for ways to enhance communication and is learning to build a relationship to bring the most out of the pupil.

Minnie’s First Hunt Of The Year Nov 05, 2018

 

HI, Christina and Todd,

Minnie had her first hunt of the season at RRC two weeks ago. She flushed 35 birds, she found and returned them all. We were in sorghum, corn stalks….all kinds of cover. What a joy to watch her work as she remembered how to do it with precision.
